About One Warm Coat: Since 1992, One Warm Coat has been working to provide free coats to anyone in need. Every year, hundreds of nonprofit organizations and schools benefit from the generosity of their neighbors. “Last year, One Warm Coat volunteers collected more than 500,000 coats, which were distributed in the communities where they were collected. DREAM needs the community’s help to keep [your city/community name] residents warm this winter. We’re happy to provide everything the community needs to hold a coat drive on our website” said One Warm Coat President & CEO, Beth W. Amodio. About DREAM: The DREAM Program helps close this gap for over 500 of the most vulnerable children in our communities by providing deeply committed college student mentors, local and regional adventures, summer enrichment and overnight camp, support for postsecondary success, and an unwavering commitment to dreaming big. The core of our model is Village Mentoring, a high dosage, college campus-based one-on-one, and team mentoring model.
